MUMBAI: In many ways, he’s the devil with the heart of gold. Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has once again proved that his heart, like his biceps, is large! The gold-hearted superstar was spotted at a local hospital, at the anniversary of a specialty facility.
Seen along with Congress leader Baba Siddiqui (he of the infamous Iftar Party Hug), Salman Khan went all out to lend his might to the Holy Family hospital. While there, Salman interacted with a few children and even spoke at length about the facility, which has been specially started for the underprivileged.
In a light blue ‘Being Human’ tee and jeans, Salman cut a hopeful, almost charitable picture. All of Bollywood is aware that for those in need, Salman is but a phone call away. His tales of bravado and benevolence are legendary in the industry circles.
Many a time, Salman Khan has lent a helping hand to filmmakers who are in need of star-power to uplift the fate of their film. He has done countless films and endorsements, reportedly free of charge, for his close friends and extended family. His compassion and generosity only pave the way in humanising him to the masses, who are forever in awe of his super starry, larger-than-life persona.
Even his clothing line, ‘Being Human’, bears witness to his kind and altruistic nature. Some of the proceeds from the sale of the ‘Being Human’ brand go towards his charity, The Salman Khan Foundation, which is a charitable trust set up to help the underprivileged. The charity focuses specifically on education and healthcare: the things that are closest to Salman’s heart.
With so much love to spare in his big heart for those in need, it is no wonder that Salman is often referred to as the ‘Dabangg’ Robin Hood of Bollywood!
